Who is Kelly

I invite you to • INHALE • PAUSE • EXHALE • and just be.  Enjoy and embrace the pause, because He will hit play…we have the choice to walk it out or …….

I'm Kelly and I am a 220-hour Certified YogaFaith Practitioner. I married my love Phillip in 1997 and we are aspiring minimalists living a simple life with our 2 fur children.  


​I found my calling to become a yoga practitioner at my sanctuary, the ocean. The salt air does me good, I came home a changed woman after my first yoga retreat. My gorgeous husband encouraged me as he always does. I resisted; this was not my dream….but was His dream for me. I choose to surrender it all and follow hard and fast after the plans He had planned for me all along. 


This must be what it feels like to truly be in His Will.

As a devoted yoga practitioner based in North Carolina, I am passionate about helping more people of all levels enjoy the benefits of yoga. I am a space maker; I invite you to meet me in this space and just be. When was the last time you inhaled, paused and exhaled?

Fun Fact:  I am an entrepreneur at heart and own 2 other businesses.  Both go hand in hand and are very dear to my heart.

Are you in need of beautiful photos?
